Their first full length album, Country Was came out in 2002 and received a warm reception from the listeners. It was followed by two moderately successful records, A Carolina Jubilee (2003) and Mignonette (2004).
Their fifth studio album, Emotionalism was released in 2007 and it made its way to Billboard 200. It was followed by even more acclaimed record, I and Love and You in 2009.
